first day of spring skirt

Its the first day of spring, but the weather is playing it cool and acting like its not a big deal. I think a thunderstorm is predicted for later. But our newly planted seeds need some water anyway!

My second skirt for the upcoming season is this floral creation. I’ve already worn it a couple times. The pattern is super simple, and I added a little roundness to the hem in the back. A perfect breezy skirt for when it finally decides to be springtime.

the strawberry patch

We added a strawberry patch to the garden! Isn’t it just the cutest little patch you ever did see.

We made the planter ourselves with our creative gardening skills. I really wanted a tiered circular planter, to add some visual interest to the garden. We had a hard time finding one that fit my landscape vision, so we made our own using some garden edging. Now its perfect.

a new skirt

After spending a week in the sunny, almost spring of the northwest, its kind of a bummer to come to the cold, drizzly south. But at least I have this new skirt for sunnier thoughts. Its my first time sewing a knit, and it actually went pretty smoothly. The bottom of the skirt is a flowy, cascading shape, so I had to model it to show it off. I’m looking forward to wearing more skirts this spring!

freezer burritos

I made some burritos for our freezer, and now I feel like the most prepared person in the world. All ready for lunches. Just add some avocado.

Underneath that foil (or in that plastic bag after I ran out of foil), is:

  • A burrito sized tortilla
  • Refried beans
  • Some cheese
  • Some of that frozen southwestern corn with the pepper and onion bits in it
  • And some salsa mixed with plain greek yogurt

So now you can feel like the most lunch-ready person in the world too! Does anyone know if lettuce freezes well?
